Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Laying out a floor plan, part of Revit Architecture: Advanced Modeling.
So as we continue to refine our design, I want to look at a couple of different…approaches to the way that we've built form so far.…Sometimes you can actually create your forms from a series of building blocks…that you already have, sort of pre-made families.…When doing that, it's often useful to have some reference geometry to work from…so that you can get things in the correct place.…So in this movie we are actually going to create that reference geometry and…then in the next we are going to work from those building blocks or those forms.…Now what I have on screen here is just a file that we ended with in the last…movie where if you watched that movie you recall we deleted the large block over…here that was a budding up to the residential neighborhood.…
So let's pretend that the residential neighborhood association complained about…the scale of our building.…They weren't too happy about having this very large edifice budding up to all…their residential structures.…The design team has gone back and looked for a solution on how to satisfy that…
